CSWE’s publications program develops new tools to help social workers and social work educators serve their clients and advance their profession. CSWE staff works in conjunction with the Council on Publications to produce books and nonprint resources through CSWE Press and original, cutting-edge articles in the Journal of Social Work Education.
CSWE Press focuses on the needs of social work educators and students. Publishing specialties include the philosophy, theory, and practice of teaching; the process and evaluation of learning; and the organization and structure of social work education. Proposal submissions for potential publications are welcome and will be reviewed by the Council on Publications. Occasionally, CSWE issues a Call for Abstracts for particular topics or publications.
To order publications, call 800-633-4931 or order online through the CSWE Bookstore. For social work educators who have adopted a CSWE Press publication for a class or are considering doing so, desk copies and examination copies are available.

The Journal of Social Work Education
CSWE’s flagship publication is the Journal of Social Work Education (JSWE), a peer-reviewed professional journal circulated to more than 3,900 members and institutional subscribers. Submissions to JSWE are accepted via an online system. JSWE is available as part of CSWE membership and by subscription.
JSWE is now accepting manuscripts for a special topic issue on Military Social Work Education: Innovative Strategies and Implications for Social Work Practice. This special issue, to be published in winter 2014, will throw a spotlight on initiatives developed to educate and train social work professionals and students for practice with military personnel, veterans, and their families. See the Call for Papers for details.
The JSWE Best Article awards recognize outstanding work published in each volume year of the journal. The Best Articles for volume year 47 are available for reading or downloading from the online JSWE.
